Ah, Vietnam. I remember it well. The military won every single battle. But it was LBJ’s Democrat War. And the Democrats surprised LBJ by viciously turning on their own president at war and demanding America be defeated.
FDR and Harry Truman firebombed Dresden and Tokyo. I mean, bad as Democrats always were with money and debt, they at least used to share the belief in God and the decency of moral values that meant if you went to war, YOU ACTUALLY FOUGHT THAT WAR TO WIN.
Those halcyon days before the Democrat Party turned into the party of pure, self-destructive evil have been gone since the 1968 Democrat National Convention when Democrats violently rioted. You know, for peace. Kind of the way Obama’s domestic terrorist buddy Bill Ayers planted bombs and murdered judges and police officers for peace.
There’s a term for it: “peace at any price.” It might sound good in theory – assuming you are a complete moral idiot – but the way it works out is Jane Fonda going to Hanoi to mock American POWs and help the communists with their propaganda. The way it works out is for John Kerry to throw away all the bogus medals he basically pinned on his own chest and dishonestly testify under oath that he personally witnessed war crimes (only to take it back when it was pointed out that if he personally witnessed war crimes and didn’t report them at the time HE HIMSELF WAS A FELLOW WAR CRIMINAL). The way it works out is for an Obama to utter threats about “red lines” and then never do a damn thing to defend the American credibility he just put on the line only to piss away. The way it works out is for America to bail on its treaties and its allies and allow our enemies to run roughshod over the world. Oh, and of course to mock, demonize and trivialize the people who were right all along. The way it works is to intervene in such a stupid, shortsighted and self-serving political way that it guarantees a mess that will haunt America for decades to come. The way it works is for Obama to piss away all the sacrifice that we won in Iraq and pull out all our troops who would have prevented a terrorist organization even worse than al Qaeda from creating a terrorist caliphate which they have said all along would become their base to launch their next strikes at America and at Israel. Oh, and then blame the people who warned you about the stupidity of what you were doing from the start. The way it works out is for a president to invite thugs and tyrants to his stupid events so he can reward thuggery and tyranny. As even the liberal Doyle McManus of the liberal Los Angeles Times pointed out.
Peace at any price means demonizing our ally Israel and taking the side of the terrorist organization Hamas which deliberately employed a strategy of forcing Israel to kill Arab civilians by digging tunnels under hospitals, mosques, schools and homes and urging people to remain to die as martyrs rather than leave before attacks that Israel warned were coming.
ISIS has run roughshod over Syria, where Obama dithered and failed, over Iraq, which Obama pissed away. And now it is running roughshod over Lebanon as it metastasizes.
The world is not only more unstable under Obama than it has ever been under Obama’s presidency; it is more unstable than it has ever been throughout Obama’s entire LIFETIME.
This radical community organizer has failed America. He has failed the world. He has failed the human race.
Peace at any price is evil. Democrats are evil. Their way – like the way of Hamas whose side they take – is the way of suicide.
As a conservative – which means as someone who does NOT urinate and defecate on the Holy Bible – I understand the meaning of the words “This will happen because these evil prophets deceive my people by saying, ‘All is peaceful’ when there is no peace at all! It’s as if the people have built a flimsy wall, and these prophets are trying to reinforce it by covering it with whitewash!”
There is a God. Democrats have shaken their fist at Him – and forced America to shake a nation that had until Obama been a “nation under God” to shake its now leftist-collectivist fist at God. As I wrote, Obama has so removed America from God’s protection it is beyond unreal. The Democrat Party is the official Party of the wrath of God.
And when a nation falls under the wrath of God it gets to repeat all of its very worst failures as it spirals down the toilet ball toward its own destruction.
And so Afghanistan becomes Vietnam, Party Deux.
And here is a beautiful little illustration of that:
US military officials ID officer killed in Afghanistan as Maj. Gen. Harold J. Greene
Published August 05, 2014
U.S. officials identified the general killed in Afghanistan on Tuesday as Maj. Gen. Harold J. Greene, who became the highest-ranking U.S. military officer killed in combat since 1970.
Greene, who was on his first deployment to a war zone, was involved in preparing Afghan forces for the time when U.S.-coalition troops leave at the end of this year. An engineer by training, he was the deputy commanding general, Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan.
Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said earlier that the assailant fired into a group of international soldiers at the Marshal Fahim National Defense University at Camp Qargha, a base west of Kabul, and was subsequently killed.
Another 15 people, roughly half of them Americans, were wounded. Among the wounded were a German brigadier general, two Afghan generals and an Afghan officer, whose rank the Afghan Defense Ministry did not provide.
The attack occurred during a site visit to the university by coalition members.
Ministry spokesman Gen. Mohammad Zahir Azimi said a “terrorist in an army uniform” opened fire on both local and international troops.
The Qargha shooting comes as so-called “insider attacks” — incidents in which Afghan security turn on their NATO partners — largely dropped last year. In 2013, there were 16 deaths in 10 separate attacks. In 2012, such attacks killed 53 coalition troops in 38 separate attacks.
The Army’s top soldier, Gen. Ray Odierno, issued a statement Tuesday evening saying the Army’s thoughts and prayers were with Greene’s family as well as the families of those injured in the attack.
In a 34-year career that began at Fort Polk, La., Greene, a native of upstate New York, earned a reputation as an inspiring leader with a sense of humility. He had been in Afghanistan since January.
At the time of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks Greene was serving at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, and when the U.S. invaded Iraq in March 2003 he was a student at the Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, at the rank of lieutenant colonel.
Greene flourished in the less glamorous side of the Army that develops, tests, builds and supplies soldiers with equipment and technology. That is a particularly difficult job during wartime, since unconventional or unanticipated battlefield challenges like roadside bombs in Iraq and Afghanistan, call for urgent improvements in equipment.
In 2009-2011, for example, he served as deputy commanding general of the Army’s Research, Development and Engineering Command and senior commander of the Natick Soldier System Center at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Aberdeen, Maryland. During that tour of duty he gained the rank of brigadier general, and at his promotion ceremony in December 2009 he was lauded for his leadership skills and ability to inspire those around him.
Lt. Gen. Stephen Speakes applauded Greene for a “sense of self, a sense of humility” and an exemplary work ethic, according to an account of the promotion ceremony published by the Times Union of Albany, N.Y., which called Greene an Albany native.
“In every job I had we got things done that I think made our Army better, and it was done by other people,” Greene was quoted as saying. “All I did was try to pull people in the right direction and they went out and did great things.”
Greene earned a bachelor of science degree in materials engineering and a master’s degree in industrial engineering, both from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y. He later studied at the University of Southern California and also attended the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College at Leavenworth, Kansas.
In 2010, he spoke at the opening of the Social Cognitive Networks Academic Research Center, a research facility at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with the mission of improving the Army’s understanding of social, information and communication networks, according to the Army’s account of the event.
“We’re in a fight now with an enemy that’s a little bit different and uses different techniques … and networks are a key part of that,” Greene said.
He said finding patterns in the tactics of insurgents was difficult because of the way networks evolve and otherwise change. So the goal was to bring to light the patterns and determine how to anticipate and influence the actions of insurgents.
“The enemy is every bit as good as we are at using that network to our detriment so this is essential work, this is about defending our country,” Greene said. “You must know that there is a direct application on the battlefield and we’re using it today, but we don’t really understand it yet so this is a critical element.”
His awards include the Legion of Merit, the Distinguished Service Medal, a Meritorious Service Award and an Army Commendation Medal.

Obama’s response reminds one of Hitler in his bunker, screaming orders that no one is bothering to follow as he loses again and again and again while promising ultimate victory to the same deaf ears:
White House: The U.S. Has Made “Tremendous Progress” In Afghanistan
“There is no question that significant progress has been made in disrupting that terror network [Al-Qaeda] on the ground in Afghanistan,” Earnest told reporters on Tuesday after the killing of a U.S. Army general.
By Maria Santangelo
August 5, 2014
(TRNS) – The same day that a U.S. Army general was shot and killed by what the Pentagon believes to be an Afghan soldier, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters Tuesday that the United States has made “tremendous progress” in bolstering the security situation in Afghanistan.
“There is no question that significant progress has been made in disrupting that terror network [Al-Qaeda] on the ground in Afghanistan,” Earnest told reporters during his daily White House press briefing. ”There is no doubt that the policy and strategy that this President put in place has… ensured that we are mitigating that risk posed to Americans both here in the United States but also around the globe.”
While Earnest said the attack on American military personnel in Afghanistan is “traumatic and tragic,” he stressed ”there is no doubt that over the last 12 years that threat has been significantly degraded.”
Earnest highlighted that the United States’ mission in Afghanistan over the last 12 years has been focused on “disrupting, dismantling and defeating the Al-Qaeda leadership” by ensuring that the Afghani government possesses “the support and resources necessary to provide for their own security.”
As a result of this mission, Earnest stated “we have seen a decline in the casualty rate of American personnel [in Afghanistan].”
Rep. Ed. Royce (R-Calif.), head of House Committee on Foreign Affairs, released a statement about the attacks, acknowledging that “in recent years, there has been some progress lessening these ‘green-on-blue’ attacks. But obviously not enough, as made clear by today’s tragedy.”
Earnest directed all questions concerning the rank of the general and the specifics surrounding the attacks to the Department of Defense, which is currently undergoing investigations.
“Peace, peace, when there IS no peace.” And everyone who isn’t an abject fool knows it:
Do you know what I call this passage in Jeremiah 6:14 and the above passage I quoted from Ezekiel 13:10? Barack Hussein Obama’s foreign policy. Which is in unprecedented shambles while Obama golfs. And which we’re assured by Obama’s fools that we should be proud of as our nation begins to circle the drain of history.
Obama’s foreign policy is to give continual assurances of peace when there is no peace, to offer superficial treatments for our national mortal wound, to constantly deceive and to build flimsy walls and reinforce those flimsy walls by covering them over with rhetorical whitewash.
Obama’s personal response to the most senior general killed since 1970 was pathetic personal indifference. Obama didn’t bother to even mention it. It’s completely irrelevant to our Community Agitator-in-Chief.
Three-quarters of all Americans killed in Afghanistan occurred during the time of Obama and his failed policy with his same “timetable for withdrawal” that doomed America to defeat in Iraq. So if the Obama White House were actually honest in their metric about “a decline in the casualty rate of American personnel” being a measure of victory, then “victory” occurred with George W. Bush as president.
Just as VICTORY occurred with George W. Bush as president in Iraq when he DEFEATED the terrorists and left an Iraq so safe and so stable behind that Obama and Biden boasted about it and took credit for the safety and stability.
What the Taliban in Afghanistan are doing is biding their time because a depraved FOOL told them precisely when America was cutting and running. And they knew that they could begin to attack us as we were pulling out and make it – rightly – appear that they were DRIVING us out. And then they will re-create their caliphate that they used as their base to attack America on 9/11 just as ISIS has already done in Iraq thanks to the exact same failed Obama policy of withdrawal.
America is too young to die. But die it will just the same. Because we VOTED to die when we voted first to stupidly elect and then even more stupidly to re-elect the worst president in the entire history of the republic.
America is nowhere mentioned in Bible prophecy, which was noted by the same people who noted in the 1830s and even EARLIER that Israel would have to be regathered as a nation after 2000 years of extinction and by the same people who noted that Russia as Gog of Magog and China and the powers of Asia as leading the kings of the east would have to become great powers when they were basically giant, powerless wastelands. The reason they predicted these things that all came to pass is because they trusted their Bibles literally and because the Bible really is the literal Word of God.
This is a nation – America, I’m talking to YOU – that is going to go down and go down hard in an agony of death throes that will never have been seen in all of history.
And I now believe I understand precisely how it will happen – and yes, it will be entirely because of none other than the coming Antichrist’s most useful idiot, Barack Hussein Obama. Obama will be to blame for the collapse of America and the coming Tribulation and the rise of Antichrist for three reasons:
1) America’s now virtually complete abandonment of the nation of Israel under Obama: Daniel chapter 9 states that the Tribulation will officially begin when Israel signs a seven-year covenant with the Antichrist (see also here for more detail). Now that America – entirely because of the Fool-in-Chief and his evil Democrat Party – has turned its collectivist back on Israel, where else will Israel have to turn but to Antichrist???
Just remember, America: when the Tribulation comes and it becomes time for you to take the mark of the beast in order to buy or sell – because Antichrist WILL be the ultimate statist who will assume total socialist power over the economy – YOU VOTED FOR IT TWICE.
2) America’s cancerous, catastrophic debt: Up until 2012, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) published something called the “Alternative Fiscal Scenario” which provided our true state of indebtedness. By that measure, in 2012, our actual debt was measured at $222 TRILLION and was rising at a staggering rate of $11 trillion each year. The demon-possessed Obama response was to cut that measurement out of the CBO’s budget, such that no report, no reporting, no problems.
Democrats have no love for the United States of America; they cynically exploit our national security, our border, our economy, as engines of their ideology. I believe that they hate America because it has always been “a nation under God” as Lincoln described it, a nation founded upon and established by Judeo-Christian principles. And Democrats rabidly hate God and Christ. Maybe you argue differently. But one thing is for sure: modern Democrats dismiss the incredible damage that they are doing to this country. On their view of government as replacing God, America is something that will be eternal. They actually believe that they can spend and spend and spend and when we broke all they have to do is add zeroes to the Federal Reserve computer and voila we will have all the money we need.
That’s the naïve Democrats, of course. The cynical Democrats – Obama’s wing – believe with Professors Cloward and Piven that they can bankrupt and economically collapse America by imploding the nation with debt by overwhelming our social support systems.
I’ve written about this: The Cloward And Piven Presidency; ObamaCare Just Another Leftist Attempt To Bankrupt America (Cloward And Piven Alert); Did Someone Just Say Cloward And Piven? Former SEIU Top Level Official Caught On Tape Conspiring To Implode America; Cloward-Piven Alive And Well: Progressives CONTINUE To Push For Destruction Of U.S. System; The Party Of Genuine Evil And The Destruction Of America: In 39 States, Democrat Welfare Pays Better Than A Secretary’s Job; Why The Logic Of Obama’s And Democrat Party’s Class Warfare Ultimately Leads To Gulags For The Poor. It comes down to this: when Obama collapses America economically with his spending that will be more than ALL U.S. presidents INCLUDING BUSH GOING BACK TO GEORGE WASHINGTON COMBINED by the time he leaves office, a panicked, desperate American people will demand that the government step in to help them. And then the real leaders of the Democrat Party will have the COMMUNISM they have been working toward since at least 1968. And Obama will have successfully “fundamentally transformed” America just as he promised.
And America will never rise again other than as what the Antichrist degenerates it into.
3) and this will be the final card that Obama has removed to complete the crash of the house of cards that America has become into agonizing death: the gutting of American military power and international prestige.
Obama has been claiming – and maniacally continues to claim in spite of all massive evidence to the contrary – that he has broken the back of al Qaeda and terrorism has been defeated. It doesn’t matter if this claim – like so many other claims and promises that Obama has made – come directly from the fanged, drooling lips of Lucifer himself. Obama cynically exploited his claim to GUT America’s military strength. After all, he was won victory. The war is over. We don’t need a strong military. To wit, we are gutting our military to pre-World War II levels under Obama. With Obama having already gutted American military combat readiness to a degree that will shock any decent American PRIOR to his gutting the Army to pre-World War II levels.
What has been Obama’s response in crisis after crisis after crisis as our enemies brutally seize the territory of our allies and murder Christians and Jews all over the world? NOTHING. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
Under Obama, our enemies no longer fear us whatsoever and our allies no longer trust us or need us whatsoever. America is irrelevant.
And an irrelevant America can be allowed – for the first time since our founding – to collapse.
Because we are now too weak and too irrelevant to matter, because of our massive debt and insane and frankly wicked bankrupt spending with not merely billions but TRILLIONS of dollars that we do not have, and because God has turned His back on America as America has turned its collectivist back on God and now on Israel, we are going DOWN.
And the trigger that sends America into the agonizing plunge to horrifying death and oblivion will be our status as the world’s reserve currency.
Right now, the U.S. dollar is “the reserve currency of the planet, which means that all commodities such as oil, etc. are purchased in the currency of U.S. dollars. That status has allowed us to do things with our currency that no other nation has EVER been allowed to do in ALL of human history. We – and by “we” I primarily mean wicked, satanic Democrats – have exploited that with spending that is quite literally insane and evil.
And the world is RIGHT for hating us as we have given ourselves a way of life that the rest of the planet pays for. It’s classic Democrat: we have redistributed the wealth (to ourselves). Democrats are the kind of cynical, dishonest hypocrites who decry as evil the very thing they do AS THEY ARE DOING IT. So they talk about the poor of the world when they don’t give one tiny drop of piss for the poor.
Obama’s morally insane economic policies forced the Federal Reserve’s fiscally insane policies. The so-called “Arab Spring” – so euphemistically titled because pathologically stupid and wicked Democrats and liberal journalists idiotically believed it was a GOOD thing – was the result of the devaluation of the U.S. dollar that was the basis of all the Arab countries that sold oil. Obama’s reckless and immoral policies have caused the Federal Reserve to essentially print and create money out of thin air beyond anything ever seen in the entire history of the human race. And the result in the Middle East was their money becoming increasingly worthless and subsequent FOOD RIOTS.
Five of the next largest economies – the so-called “BRICS” of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – ALL want the U.S. role as reserve currency to be ended. And don’t think our former ally Germany will oppose that move.
As a result of these three above factors, the United States will lose its status as reserve currency. And we will completely economically collapse overnight.
It will be Obama’s fault, just as the complete military disgrace and failure if first Iraq and now Afghanistan was Obama’s fault. And no one will be happier than Obama when America collapses. Because Obama will have “fundamentally transformed America” just as he promised (as the ONLY promise this evil man will have kept).
The ultimate goal of progressive liberalism will soon be attained:
And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. — Revelation 13:16-17
And if I may quote the reverend and spiritual advisor of Barack Hussein Obama:
The beast is coming. He’s coming because you voted for and then re-elected his Most Useful Idiot-in-Chief.
